This week's show should be useful on a number of levels. One benefit to viewers is that you get to see a small trap that's pretty easy for White to fall into, and in this particular blitz game, the fish - me - was hooked. That was the beginning of the story.
The next part was figuring out what to do then, and more generally, figuring out how to respond to an unpleasant surprise. If I reacted normally to my opponent's idea, he would have taken over the initiative. Sometimes that's just what you should do: be objective, and if the position calls for you to go on the defensive for the time being, then do so. It's a good idea to be sure that that's really necessary, though, and after spending more than a third of my time thinking about how to react, I found a really fascinating way to join the battle rather than going over to defense. It worked!
I think you'll find the game very entertaining (at least I hope so), and trying to work through some of the positions should make for a good training session as well. So please have a look: the show is free, as always (free registration is required), and it will be available on demand for the next month or so.
